Video: The Most Blatant Display Of Sportsmanship You'll See Today

This video from the world of amateur MMA is a perfect example of sportsmanship in the sport; an element that is not often talked about.

Amateur flyweight, Mike Pantango begins to unload on an addled Jeremy Rasner and dominates the fight; but instead of finishing him off, Pantango instead chooses to tap himself out of the fight.


In a follow up interview he says he did it so he didn't have to hurt his thoroughly un-prepared opponent...


I just feel that there's no point fighting him because he didn't train against me and I didn't train for him and I just fee like we're amateur fighters. We don't get money. We don't get get paid.

And I know that the only thing I'm going to finish the fight is him to go in the hospital or get hurt. I just feel terrible so I'm just going to give him the win.
